Serpent's bite : a western adventure / James Clay.

Clay, James, (author.).


"The wild west becomes even wilder as violence erupts over booze in the Texas town of Red Horse. A play, The Devil's Brew, which demands the abolition of liquor is greeted with gunfire. The author is brutally murdered, and the cast threatened with death by the appearance of "devil dolls." Detective Rance Dehner quickly discovers that no one in the cast of the play believes in abolition. They are struggling actors trying to make a living. But powerful forces are conspiring to end the play and end their lives. Dehner must shoot his way through a trail of deceit and corruption. At the end of the trail is a shocking truth which promises even more violence and death"-- Provided by publisher.
